An Erasmus+ project that aims to use drama and storytelling to help teachers address the topic of consent with students in the classroom.

GA number: KA220-MV-23-24-151276

Funded by: Erasmus+      Duration: 01/09/2023-31/08/2025


The EU has taken steps to ensure that consent is respected as a fundamental human right and upheld in all types of relationships, including sexual relationships. In 2017, the EU adopted the Istanbul Convention, which is a comprehensive legal framework for addressing violence against women and domestic violence.

Despite advancements in policy to protect individuals around consent, many educational systems across Europe still do not include consent education as part of their curricula, leaving young people to rely on informal sources such as peers, the media, and the internet for information.

Educating young people about the importance of consent can help to foster a culture of respect and communication and create a safer and more inclusive society.


Act4Consent intends to use drama and storytelling to support secondary school teachers and other youth educators to address the issue of consent directly with young people, through active and meaningful education interventions.


ACT4Consent will develop a 30-hour CPD Programme for Secondary Schoolteachers and Counsellors, aiming to raise awareness among teachers about the importance of consent and how it relates to the way they interact with students, to support teachers to create a respectful and safe environment for themselves and their students to address consent, and to develop their pedagogic skills to use the ACT4Consent toolkit resources in their teaching practice.

  • MOOC Platform Development:
    The full curriculum of the 6-module CPD Programme will be presented through a MOOC platform. The modules consist of: Introduction to Consent for Students; Self-care for Teachers; Ethical and Legal Issues related to Consent; Cultural Norms and Consent; Communication for Consent; and Drama and Storytelling Techniques. Each module will include 3-hours of face-to-to-face workshop-based instruction, and 3 hours of additional, autonomous learning resources that will be made available for teachers in all partner languages.

The toolkit resources aim to provide schoolteachers, students and parents with specific, age-appropriate resources that will support them to develop an understanding of what consent means; comprehend legal and ethical frameworks; develop skills for expressing consent; encourage reflection and evaluation; and foster empathy and understanding.

The toolkit also provides a Handbook for Teachers that includes 10 topics related to consent, explored through the use of both drama and storytelling techniques. Namely, 16 short videos and accompanying tipsheets (8 for students and 8 for parents) available on a MOOC platform.

All training content is available in all 7 partner languages.
